This just in to the BHB Newsroom:
During Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition’s Adoption Van event on Sunday, a little girl tried to hold a cat that got away from her. He dashed out the door and into traffic.
Phantom is a sweet but shy 18 month old black cat. BBAWC members and supporters (and neighbors and doormen) spent the afternoon and evening chasing this poor cat.
He needs medication. He’s not a ‘street cat’ and is very frightened right now.
He was last spotted in the Pierrepont/Columbia Heights/Promenade area. He will likely bolt if approached, but he loves tuna/sardines/wet food. He may try to hide in a doorway, or even run into a house.
If he is spotted, PLEASE contact BrooklynBridgeAnimals@yahoo.com or call 347-599-1930, and BBAWC will send a volunteer to help catch him. Help us bring poor Phantom back – he has a loving home waiting for him. Thank you!
